Now, let’s hear from Amy about her project…
I love a good floral die set, especially one
that is versatile enough that you can die-cut
patterned paper or solid colors. I worked
with Bloom Where You’re Planted
since it had large blooms and a flower pot die to coordinate.
I wanted to layer my blooms over the Lattice Cutting Plate but wanted to temper the white on white style. Don’t
get me wrong, I love a white on white card, but
I decided to lay some color down on my white card “behind” the
lattice. I sponged some coordinating ink
randomly onto my white cardstock panel. As you
can see, I didn’t try too hard to make it pretty or blend it because it won’t matter once you layer the Lattice
Cutting Plate over the top! I love the
look of the blue showing through the lattice!
My blooms were die-cut and layered with foam adhesive atop the die-cut
flower pot cut out of Salt Water Taffy
Cardstock. Did you notice the flicks
of darker color on the blooms and leaves? I used coordinating Copic markers to “flick” color to just give the
flowers a bit of dimension. A tiny bit
of twine was tied around the rim of the flower pot. To ground my image on the white lattice, I
adhered a thin strip of black cardstock. I think this little detail is a must.
My sentiment was die-cut from Cherry
Pop cardstock from Hi, Hey, Hello die set and adhered.
Thanks so much, Amy, for sharing this fun die-cut project! You can catch more of Amy’s design work on her blog, Stamp-n-Paradise.
